What Porcelain Veneers Can Do for You

Are your teeth uneven or crooked? Is going the route of traditional braces not right for you? Talk to Dr. Chen about porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic that attach to the front of your teeth to conceal crooked teeth

Some preparation of the teeth is required before placement, so porcelain veneers are permanent. Patients who undergo treatment love the translucent nature of veneers, which is very close the that of a natural tooth.

Since a dental veneer covers the surface of your tooth, we can use them to conceal a wide variety of cosmetic flaws.

  • Broken teeth
  • Teeth with chipped edges
  • Size or shape discrepancies
  • Badly stained or discolored teeth
  • Wide gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Mild tooth misalignment

Getting Porcelain Veneers

Once you and Dr. Chen decide that porcelain dental veneers will help you meet your smile goals, the process takes place over two visits.

During the first visit, we prep the teeth we’re treating and take impressions so we can make a model of your teeth. We’ll use the model to create your temporary veneers, and then send it to a dental lab that fabricates your custom veneers.

We’ll make a second appointment for you when your new veneers come back from the dental lab. We’ll check them for fit and bond them securely to your teeth.

Caring for Your New Dental Veneers

Your porcelain veneers should last ten years or longer with excellent dental care. Your veneer won’t get a cavity, but the tooth beneath it still can. If you do get a cavity, we would most likely remove and replace your veneer, so taking good care of your teeth is critical.

Brush and floss conscientiously, and visit us for cleanings and exams twice a year to ensure your teeth and your veneers are in good condition.

If you have questions for our cosmetic dentist about the proper way to extend the longevity of your dental veneers, please call our South Aurora dental office.

Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening

Are your teeth stained or discolored? Professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile after just an hour in the dental chair! Professional teeth whitening is safe and effective. 

Dr. Chen offers in-office whitening options as well as at-home treatments.

Teeth whitening continues to be a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure because it is so affordable and results are fast. Please call our South Aurora dental office to schedule your next teeth cleaning to get started!

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Store-Bought

Do you look at all the teeth whitening products at your supermarket and wonder if they live up to their hype? The answer is that most any whitening product – including toothpaste – will help lift some stains from your teeth. But you can invest a lot of time and money only to find that the results can’t stand up to those we can achieve with professional teeth whitening.

There are several reasons why teeth whitening at our Aurora dental office is superior to store-bought products.

  • Since a dental professional supervises your treatment, we can use a more potent concentration of whiteners for faster, more dramatic results.
  • Our take-home whitening kits include customized trays using impressions of your teeth. A custom fit prevents the whitening gel from seeping onto your gums and causing irritation and also provides more even, consistent results.
  • You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you have a dental professional to turn to if you experience sensitivity or have a question or problem.

Cosmetic Dental Crowns Improve Your Appearance

Often large fillings in the back molars of the teeth can weaken the tooth structure and cause fractures. Because too much of the tooth structure has already been removed, replacing the filling may not be an option. A dental crown can restore the tooth so you can chew properly again.

But did you know that we also use dental crowns to address certain cosmetic flaws? We often use dental crowns at our South Aurora dental office to cosmetically to cover up a tooth with an odd shape or stubborn tooth stains. We make custom crowns that blend in beautifully with your natural teeth.

Same-Day Dental Crowns: A Better Smile in One Visit

We know our patients have busy, active lifestyles, so we’re pleased to offer same-day dental crowns at our Aurora dental office. Whether you’re getting a crown to fix a dental issue like a broken tooth or to address cosmetic smile flaws, we can complete the entire process in a single appointment.

Dr. Chen uses E4D same-day crowns that are similar to CEREC. Using 3-D digital scanning technology, he can plan, design, and fabricate your dental crown in the comfort of our office. The appointment takes about two hours, and you’ll leave our South Aurora, CO dental office that day with a beautiful, durable crown.

Virtually Invisible Dental Repairs

We use tooth-colored fillings because they are strong and durable and mimic the appearance of dental enamel. Also called composite fillings, Dr. Chen shades and shapes them to create a stronger tooth structure.

Our patients prefer tooth-colored composite dental fillings because it’s virtually impossible to detect the repair. Dr. Chen uses composite fillings to restore teeth anywhere in your mouth because they blend in seamlessly for a natural look.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Since tooth-colored filling material contains glass and resin particles, it resembles the natural translucency of dental enamel. This quality makes the material perfect for a process called cosmetic dental bonding that addresses small cosmetic imperfections such as gapped, chipped, or cracked teeth. Please call our cosmetic dentist in South Aurora, CO to learn more about dental bonding!
